History of the Fire Company 

A group of residents of Avenel banned together for the purpose of organizing a fire com- 
pany. The group held its first meeting at the home of Mr. J. B. Edgar, July 1, 1912, to appoint 
Fire Commissioners for the district. The following were appointed to serve for the ensuing year: 
Dr. A. F. Mount, J. B. Edgar, E. A. Moran, H. Posner and J. Praver. 

On February 18, 1913, a fire company was organized. A charter under the name of the 
Avenel Chemical Company No. 1 was obtained. July 12, 1913, the name was legally changed to 
the Avenel Fire Company No. 1. 

The charter members are as follows: Messrs. Joseph Bizdery, Fred Ciegotura, Emil C. 
Earhart, Edward L. Fagan, Andrew Fuss, Rudolph Hrinyak, Edward A. Moran, Edwin J. Perry, 
Joseph Praver, Henry Striker, Joseph Szabo and William VanSlyke. 

Joseph Szabo served as the first Fire Chief during 1913, 1914 and 1915. The First Presi- 
dent was Edward Moran, who was also a charter member. 



A seventy gallon chemical hand-drawn apparatus was purchased, also a carboy of acid 
and a barrel of soda used for fire equipment. This apparatus was housed in a shed owned by 
Joseph Praver. The following year the firemen built a small building on a lot leased by a fireman, 
Frank Hacker, for five years. As years passed with monies received from various activities and 
donations from public-spirited citizens, a piece of property was purchased on Hyatt Street, corner 
of Ziegler Avenue, upon which a hollow brick fire house was built in 1919. 

In 1921 monies were raised through an appropriation voted by the people in the fire dis- 
trict, which resulted in the purchase of a motor-driven apparatus, a two hundred and fifty gallon 
pumper. The same year fire hydrants were installed on Avenel Street, and up to the present time 
fire hydrants are installed throughout the district. 

A new Highway was constructed by the State Highway Commission, called the "Super- 
highway," and part of the fire house property was taken by the Commission, resulting in the pur- 
chase of a new piece of property by the Fire Commissioners to house the fire equipment. Our 
present fire house was built in the year 1929, on the corner of Avenel Street and the Superhighway. 

In 1936 a five hundred gallon truck was purchased. Also an installation of a Fire Alarm 
System in the district, with eight fire alarm boxes. 

Looking back on the Fire Company's first twenty-five years, we cannot forget the gala 
parade which was held by the Department every July 4th during the 1920's and the early part 
of the 30's. There were activities for the children throughout the day, with fireworks and a 
block dance in the evening. 

In 1953 a new Gamewell Fire Alarm System was installed to replace the one of 1936. 1955 
brought about an addition to the fire house, making it a three bay building, as it now stands. 
During the past twenty-five years, we have had three new fire trucks. 

Forty-three Fire Chiefs have served the Avenel Fire Company since its organization. In 
this year, 1963, we have forty-nine fire alarm boxes in the district, and eighty-five hydrants in 
Colonia and one hundred and fifty-two in Avenel, making a total of two hundred and thirty- 
seven. We feel this is a fine record for a company now celebrating its Golden Anniversary. 




The present roster consists of fifty active firemen

Exempt Firemen's Association 

It was 37 years ago April 7, 1926 that seven men who had served the Avenel 
Fire Co. No. 1 for seven consecutive years, with a percentage of 60 per cent or 
more, to be recognized by the N. J. State Firemen's Association had come to- 
gether to organize the Avenel Exempt Firemen's Association. These members 
consisted of Joseph Utassy, Frederick Ciegotura, Florian Wranitz, Louis Kromer, 
Jacob Winquist, Frank Schlener, Herman Wukitz. It was at this meeting that 
Joseph Utassy was elected president; Florian Wranita, vice-president; Frederick

A group of firemen and their wives discussed forming a Ladies Auxiliary to the Fire Company. 

In 1930, the Avenel Fire Company appointed the following committee, consisting of firemen, William Perna, Rudolph 
Voelker and the President of the Fire Company. Patrick J. Donate as ex-officio to meet with the women for the 
purpose of organizing the Ladies Auxiliary. 

Through the efforts of the Avenel firemen, the Ladies Auxiliary was organized. 

The committee instructed the group of women present to appoint a chairman. Mrs. Patrick J. Donate was appointed 
to serve in that capacity. 

She called the meeting to order and the following officers were elected to serve for the ensuing year; President 
Mrs. Charles Flynn, Vice President, Mrs. Thomas Cannon, Secretary, Miss Louise Toepfer, Treasurer, Mrs. William Perna. 

The Constitution and By-Laws were compiled and accepted by the Fire Company. 

The object of this organization is to co-operate with the Fire Company whenever called upon. 

The Board of officers of the Ladies Auxiliary at the 25th (Silver) Anniversary of the Fire Company were; Presi- 
dent, Mrs. Everett Johnson; Vice President, Mrs. Patrick Donate; Secretary, Mrs. William Perna; Treasurer, Mrs. Harold 
Hanson. 

There were 42 members in the Auxiliary in 1938. 

The officers of the Ladies Auxiliary at the 50th (Golden) Anniversary of the Fire Company are; President, Mrs. 
Alex Tarcz, Jr.; Vice President, Mrs. Michael Tetesco; 2nd Vice President, Mrs. Frank Wanca; Recording Secretary, 
Mrs. Godfrey Thompson; Corresponding Secretary, Mrs. Peter Greco; Treasurer, Mrs. James Mulligan; Sergeant-at- 
Arms. Mrs. George Allen. 

There are 62 members in the Ladies Auxiliary in 1963. 

The Ladies Auxiliary of Avenel, joined the State organization of Ladies Auxiliaries in 1947 and the county or- 
ganization in 1956. There are 8 life members, 2 delegates and 2 alternates to the State. 

The most important committee is the Kitchen Brigade. Mrs. William Dwyer is chairman, Mrs. William Bonham, co- 
chairman. The committee is called upon to serve coffee and sandwiches to the firemen when they are on fire duty 
for a long period of time. The men are often served at the scene of the fire so that no time is lost in their efforts to 
save lives and property which is their first concern. 

Fifteen members have passed on to the Great Beyond, in God's care. May they rest in peace. 

The committee from the Auxiliary working with the firemen on their 50th anniversary celebration is: Chairman, 
Mrs. Harold Hanson; Mrs. William Perna, Mrs. WilUam Kuzmiak, and the President of Auxiliary, Mrs. Alex Tarcz, Jr.

IN MEMORIAM 

God, in His infinite wisdom, has removed from our midst beloved members in 
whose death the Department has lost revered friends, sincere and loyal. The 
community has lost valued and respected citizens, and the families have lost kind 
and devoted members. 

We shall miss their pleasant companionship and good fellowship, their wise 
counsel, and their loyalty to the best interest of the fire department and their 
fellowmen. 

We therefore set aside this page to commemorate and recall to the minds of the 
men of the Avenel Fire Department those who have gone before us into the 
shadow of the great beyond.
